Cash donations are best.  The funds are used to purchase fresh produce and other healthy food options.  Bulk purchase and access to the Food Terminal allows us better buying power, and each donated dollar can purchase the equivalent of $3.00 worth of fresh food!

Ways to donate:

• cheque (made out to St. James Food Basket)
• credit card
• PayPal’s secure portal

Donations over $20, as well as on-line donations, are eligible for tax receipts, which are issued at the end of the calendar year unless otherwise requested.

For more information about making a donation and picking up tax receipts, contact us.

In-kind contributions are also welcomed and appreciated. We have a walk-in refrigerator and freezer to accept fresh food. We do not accept opened packages, expired foods or glass jars. We appreciate you taking the time to sort and box your donations.
